But, I'd really like you to expand on the 14th Amendment and why you're such an advocate of it. In your own words, of course.
Because the states end up making bogus rules and turn into micro-nations more than an actual Republic. Using the Civil War as a prime example, they flaunted State's Rights without any regard to human decency. That's why the "Incorporation" portion of the 14th Amendment is so important, because it makes sure that the Bill of Rights and its basic outline is honored by each and every state under the Union/Republic/Democratic Union of the Republic/etc.
And now, in no particular order (thanks to Senor Cuervo...)

OK, if you're going to be a "supporter of the 14th Amendment", please read it first.
It's in the "Incorporation" Clause, doll.
As for the "10th Amendment's clash", it should be remembered that anything not delegated to the US Constitution is reserved to the states and its peoples. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness being part of the Constitution, it's reasonable to assume that they fall under the beginning sentences of our fair piece of paper.
If you'd like to get in an Arizona argument, I'd be happy to oblige as well, sweetie.
I've got a few questions about the Supreme Court...Michael Badnarak suggested some interesting things about it...I'm not sure...
Question as much as you wish, I'll try to answer as best as I can. May I recommend the reasoning behind McDonald vs. Chicago, for your thoughts?
Should a business owner be forced to do this? If the business owner chooses, that is one thing, but government doesn't have the privilege to force individual business owners. That would be, could be capitalism.
I'll rephrase - I feel like I was agreeing with you, but you might of gotten the wrong vibe. My bad?
Huh? What does the 14th Amendment have to do with capitalism???
The fact that the 14th Amendment ties in with states following the guidelines laid out by the Constitution.
Author's Note - I might be quoting too vaguely. Please let me know and I'll be sure to add more information from other quotes post-haste.
Yes. Of the 20th century, I figure my favorite president was Ike.
Of the 21st century, we still haven't had an elected president. Bush wasn't elected either time and obummer isn't American.
Something like that. My favorite is, and will forever be, Theodore Roosevelt - as anyone who's read my posts would understand. The man is one of my five heroes, and whom I strive to be more like each and every day.
A lady never tells her age.
If a lady tells you her age...she'll tell you anything.
I'm old enough to be you're mother. And, I'm too honest to deal cars.
Hey Wing, I don't see this as a "debate", I see this as a discussion, an enjoyable discussion. You have never insulted me, you've always been respectable. You must have good parents. However, if you want a debate from me, you'll need to first make me mad.
That is when I actually go out and have the passion to find the evidence to support my case.
In no particular order...
If you knew my mom's age, you might be a bit inclined to revise that statement, doll.
I try to make everything as enjoyable as possible for each party, unless someone tries to insult my intelligence, which you most certainly have not done (yet
I can play a lot of parts. Charming, intelligent, mysterious, young, old, sarcastic, serious, etc. I can't feint anger on command though. We're in the same boat, sadly. I was taught to stay calm and respectful of others opinions at all times. You'll have to deal with my soothing words and lovely logic for now, I'm afraid.
My parents were the best of the best. If you'd like to know more, though, I'm afraid you'll have to PM me for a history lesson.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.
Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.
Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.
War = Life
